Perhaps I heard it wrong, but didn't she make the statement that she came out ages ago? That isn't new anyway. Most everyone knew that "ages" ago, but who cares. Jodie is beautiful, brilliant and talented.

I don't care about her personal life in the least.

I do like her work as an actress, though.

Try watching one of those shows like TMZ. They "report" their "news" just like the real news that actually has something to do with what is going on in our world and how it makes a difference in our daily lives.

Dirty laundry news is very popular.....

She did a Clint Eastwood (take-off) of not saying what everyone thought she was about to say -
(( because she's single ))
*=* It was a \\ joke // folks!*=*
Boy!'i'm glad 'i' read it, all these years she's been 'my' secret 'sweetheart','i' don't know if 'i' could have handled it?

PS: I think she fooled the broadcast company also even though there's a {pause-time}.

EXAMPLE:

Opposition to President Obama’s choice of Chuck Hagel for Defense Secretary continued to mount as Republicans and others voiced doubts about the selection. While representatives of Jewish and gay groups expressed concern about previous statements made by Mr. Hagel, the main criticism came from Senate Republicans.

“I’m a Vietnam vet like Chuck,” said John McCain,“I appreciate that he’s the first enlisted man ever to be nominated for this post, that he understands what it’s like to be in combat, that he was wounded twice, that he’s a war hero. That’s exactly why he’s wrong for the job.”

Senator Lindsey Graham echoed those sentiments.“This nation has a long history of old men who never saw combat sending other people’s kids to war. Will a guy who actually knows what being under fire is like be willing to use our nation’s youth as cannon fodder in a completely pointless war?”

A former official in the George W. Bush administration, who asked not to be identitifed, added,“While I respect Mr. Hagel’s war record, he was one of the first senators to recognize that the war in Iraq was a total sham. And he’s a Republican! The guy just can’t be trusted to get us into the next unnecessary conflict.”

“Our whole bloated defense budget depends on us jumping from one trumped-up war in some failed backwater state to the next so that our defense contractors can keep the assembly lines humming. And those companies are huge campaign contributors,” noted McCain.“I don’t think Chuck gets that.”

Texas Senator John Cornyn was especially blunt.“He’s the worst possible guy for the job. Chuck Hagel doesn’t understand how much of America’s economy depends on putting as many of our young people as possible in harm’s way for the sole reason of enriching mega-corporations like Halliburton.

“Where the heck would this country be today if we’d never invaded Iraq or Afghanistan?”

Kinda' off topic if you ask me. I know it's hard, but try to stay within the confines of the topic in the future. Posting this constant political rhetoric only shows other folks how fanatical and absurd you really are.
